I think many of the subcategories under Category:Real world need to be renamed to fit this wiki's in-universe point of view. At the moment, Category:Artists (real-world) and Category:Composers are used for real people, and this makes it difficult to to sort characters like Magenta Comstock and Musidora Barkwith under Category:Individuals by job. I think that all real-life categories should be prefixed with "real" ("Real actors," "real authors," etc.), as awkward as that seems, in order to make it easier to categorize fictional subjects.

I agree. Another example is Category:Translators; Hermione Granger cannot be categorized there currently, despite having translated The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which puts that article under the slightly less appropriate category of Category:Authors. Oread (talk) 22:07, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
